Black History Month 2020
Posted: 21st October 2020
This year two of our alumni have featured prominently in Oxford’s Black History Month #BHM100 publicity campaign. #BHM100 is a series celebrating the power of academic achievement and how Black people, past and present, have contributed to the calibre of Oxford University’s reputation and understanding of Black experiences. The entries have their own unique value, and are not placed in any particular order.
Anne-Marie Imafidon is number 71 in #BHM100. Anne-Marie is the founder of STEMettes, a social enterprise working to inspire and support young women into STEM careers. In 2017 Anne-Marie was awarded an MBE in the New Year’s Honours ‘for services to young women within STEM careers’.

Chao Mbogo is featured as number 85 in the #BHM100 and was also interviewed for the University’s alumni pages. Chao is Dean of the School of Technology and Computer Science at the Kenya Methodist University and is the founder of a student mentoring scheme called KamiLimu.
